Casa Del Vino 3D Art Competition

Wednesday 14th February-Friday 23rd March 2018

CALLING ALL SCULPTORS LIVING IN THE TOP OF THE SOUTH!!! Win $3,000 with a wine-themed sculpture! Submissions are due by midnight on 23rd March 2018.

The theme of the competition is WINE. There are many interpretations of the myriad of aspects of wine, ranging from the visual beauty to the history, flavors, and traditions. Other aspects of WINE as a
theme to consider are the social implications and effects of WINE, the combination with food to create the art of dining, the production challenges, and the farming of vines. Wine has permeated civilization for thousands of years, and its place in society is important. However, it is not necessary to take it seriously all the time either. Art that incorporates humor, or thought provoking messages, movement (kinetic), or visually stunning technique is encouraged. Fun irreverence toward wine is also encouraged.

Submissions need to include a detailed description of the proposed artwork, with sketches or other visual aids that help communicate the concept and physical presence.

Materials, technique and colour palettes should be described, so the essence of the artwork to be created can be fully imagined.

Please also supply background on the inspiration and thought process involved in executing the competit
